Did not know what to expect but when all sais and done this is going to be a favorite of ours. Excellent food...especially the lasagna...and reasonable prices. The management and staff are outstanding for such an out of the way establishment. Give your taste buds and pocketbook a treat and pay them a visit as soon as you can.

We tried this restaurant first in January of the year (2011) and we’ve been there four times already, for breakfast and lunch. Dinner is also available. Lukumbe’s hours are 8:00 am until 11:30 pm every day.
We like it for the combination of food quality, value and atmosphere.
Menu: Their menu is extensive, ranging from breakfast fare (omelettes and egg dishes, sweet rolls, omelettes, chilaquiles), specialty coffees and teas, deli fare (baguetttes, focaccia), salads and, later in the day, additional offerings such as Italian entrees (fetuccini, lasagna, spaghetti, pizza), as well as Steak (T-bone and Rib-eye) and fajitas. Here’s a sample.
Huevos Motuleños: 55 pesos
Arrachera (marinated), accompanied by beans and chilaquile;s 95 pesos
Sweet cinnamon rolls (8 pesos each).
Omelette Verde (Green omelette: egg whites filled with cheese, mushrooms, red peppers, bathed in an avocado sauce): 60 pesos
Eggs over easy, bacon, accompanied by beans and toast: 55 pesos
Lunch
Lukucombo, which is a ½ salad of your choice, with a half baguette of your choice. 75 pesos. Huge serving!
We had the Baguette Americano (turkey breast, green and red peppers, onion, mushrooms and some other veggies). Very complete. Many other choices are available, with a wide variety of meats and cheeses to choose from.
Prices are reasonable: We usually pay about 200 pesos with tip (for two people) which includes ample toast and a bottomless cup of coffee. Lunch is a bit less.
You can also stop in from a sweet roll (8 pesos) or a slice of cake (35.00 pesos per slice or take a whole cake away) and specialty coffee or tea and juice (prices are between 16 to 25 pesos for a small size).
There is also a children’s menu: chicken nuggets, mini chicken hamburgers, spaghetti or French fries: 45-55 pesos.
Atmosphere: This is a beautiful clean place with lots of space, a quiet location and even a very impressive kids play area (both indoor and out). It is directly across from the British American School in a nice Mexican neighbourhood called Col. Jardines Vallarta,east of Costco. At least when we have been there, in the early part of the day, It seems to be a favourite of business people, families with young children, women having a girls lunch—everybody but tourists. Even though all but a very few of the patrons are Mexican, the wait staff seem to be predominantly bright young people (they look like students) who absolutely LOVE to speak and practice English.
Getting there: By car or cab, it is located on the Avenida los Tules #449, extension of the Fluvial road (the one that goes past Costco on the south side), a few blocks east of Fco. Villa.
By bus: Take a green El Centro bus that says “Playa Grande” on the windshield. You can also take a tunnel bus (Tunel), but the waitress said that the El Centro buses are more frequent.
